point. san francisco giants taking on the brewers tonight. and, yes, it's very typical here weather for the giants. let's hope it plays towards their advantage. we're looking at patchy fog rolling in and temperatures also on the cooler side with 50s, winds out of the west at 13 miles per hour. back there in brewers territory, they were dealing with all-time record setting heat, so maybe this whole temperature thing will throw them off. the numbers will continue to drop tonight. already 60s in hayward. 76 in san jose and 81 in livermore. tonight the fog does return at the coastline and for this weekend, we'll just skate right along with some average temperatures. and then ahead in our seven day forecast, we are talking about some heat, some 90 degree weather, that will be making its way back. so for tonight, there's the fog. it's having an easy time moving on in. hot air will stay well off toward the south. as we continue in this foggy pattern the next 48 hours, so that will mean 80s inland instead of those 90s.
6:49pm
and then sunday we'll look at afternoon sun coming back after we get throughout this fog. so as we head throughout tomorrow, the fog about pushes back by 11:00 a.m. and for tonight, we're looking at 57 in los gatos and redwood city. as for saturday, 84 in morgan hill, 85 in gilroy. and as we continue right up into the peninsula and also san francisco, looking at 84 in palo alto and 68 in san francisco. 68 in richmond and 8 mid-80s right into the north bay. and of course you can always get more on this anytime on on the weather channel on cable. on our seven day forecast, we stay with a steady pattern of those mid and upper 80s the next couple of days. and then possibly some 90 degree heat by next thursday and friday. so looks good the next couple days. >> thank you, jeff. >> i see you wrote fantastic for next friday. >> you have good eyes there.
